Lake Victoria Hotel Nov 03, 2012
The Lake Victoria Hotel is a large, luxury hotel very close to the airport in Entebbe. Facilities include a gorgeous pool, poolside bar, a restaurant, a hairdresser, a tour organiser and two gift shops. The rooms are a nice size, and the hotel is built around internal courtyards so there is lots of natural light. All of the staff were helpful and friendly.
One of the most striking things about staying in this hotel is the security, which took some getting used to – guards on the gate and an x-ray machine at the entrance. I think this is more of a reflection on the clientele than on the area – I didn’t ever feel unsafe in Entebbe, but the hotel hosts some UN sponsored events, and when we were there a training event for women MPs, and the car park was always half full of the distinctive white pick-up trucks that the UN and the major NGOs cruise around in. I would imagine that if you were in the mood for chatting at the bar you could get some great stories, but we weren’t in a chatty mood when we were there.
The pool was lovely. You can pay to come to the pool if you are not staying at the hotel. There is a big, deep actual pool and a shallower children’s pool. The pool area also contains a gym, which I didn’t look at, but glancing through the window it looked modern and clean.
The breakfast buffet was lovely, and the other food we had was nice too. All in all, this is a great hotel to stay in if you are looking for a luxury stay. It is expensive - $240USD for a double – but we negotiated that down by about $80. Airport transfers are included in the price.
